Recent guest reviews

Facility itself is ok..5 Stars though goes to the staff, they were just wonderful, laid back and chill..check in was's better to rent a safe thats located right in the lobby in front of can keep your valuables there including your purses..the safe box can fit a laptop and your average side purse at the same time...the room I stayed in was a 14 bed female dorm room, in the lower level near the showers/toilet..I was on the top bunk...unfortunately there were no electrical sockets near your bed, so if you're in a top bunk, you better make sure you're phone is charged up for the night so you can surf the net or watch Netflix in only gripe was the roommates closed the window, so it got so stuffy inside and I wake up a few of the roommates were noisy, going in and out of the room, the door itself is heavy so when it closes, it bangs and wakes me up..I usually wake up at 4am to avoid the morning crowd in the showers/ are sharing it with 20 other men and women and there are only 4 shower stalls and three toilets on the lower floor so getting there early it advisable unless you wanna wait in line..the lounge can get very busy so looking for a socket to charge your devices can be always come early..4-8am usually there's only a few using the lobby..they sell European charge socket just in case you forgot to bring one yours..they have a laundry facility which I used twice..4.40 pounds for the laundry
